    Ugh. Sad times. One of the greatest hitters to ever live and seemed like a very good guy.

    It's not even one of the headline stories on ESPN. It's off to the side. Fuck ESPN, Tony Gwynn was probably the best pure hitter since Ted Williams.

    What was the cause? Did he have a long term illness? He became even heavier after retirement, so I imagine that had something to do with it.
